Matt and Cindy have been married for 18 years. They felt God calling them 17 years ago into the ministry and started serving in the youth at their local church. This led to leading worship together and preaching opportunities for Matt in the mid week Wednesday night service. They moved to Orillia Ontario in November 2005 where they started a church with Matt's parents which included leading a young adults coffee house in the downtown of the city. In Orillia, doors also opened up for them for leading worship and preaching in multiple churches. In 2010, they moved back to Waterloo where they presently serve along side Matt's parents at Freedom Life Church in Kitchener Ontario. They have a 16 year old son who plays drums on the church worship team, and a 13 year old daughter who sings and plays guitar.
Matt is an ordained minister with Pillar of Fire Churches International.
